LONDON — J.K. Rowling is building two treehouses fit for a wizard.
Despite some complaints from neighbors, the City of Edinburgh Council said Thursday it has approved the Harry Potter author’s application to create the large treehouses in her garden for her children.
The structures – each about 40 feet high – feature tall, conical roofs and turreted windows in the style of Hogwarts Castle in the Harry Potter movies.
Artist impressions submitted to the council show that they will be built on wooden stilts and are connected by a rope bridge.
Other features included are lanterns above the doors, a spiral staircase, balconies, a trapdoor and a steel slide.
Several neighbors had written to object, saying the treehouses may be visible from the road through a gap in the conifers that shield the development and could affect the area’s landscape.
But the council granted Rowling’s request, saying the development would not harm the conservation area.
The 47-year-old author lives in a 17th-century mansion in an Edinburgh suburb with her husband and three children.
